One Laptop Per Child

I’ve not paid much attention to the development of the One Laptop Per Child project recently. But looking at it again, it’s truly one of the most inspiring projects around right now. Their aims are really interesting:

The MIT Media Lab has launched a new research initiative to develop a
$100 laptop—a technology that could revolutionize how we educate the
world’s children. To achieve this goal, a new, non-profit association,
One Laptop per Child (OLPC), has been created, which is independent of
MIT.

And the machine itself is shaping up to be really interesting. I’m pretty fond of the design too. It may look a bit like a toy, but when you read the specs it’s far from it.
